    help with ACTIVESOURCEID

    I have been reading and experimenting for days now, and cant seem to fix my issue. I am using the latest RR and DFX 4 (thanks Guino, Blue ZX3 and others). I have it working for the most part, but when I switch to my GPS iGuidance screen the audio tagartist, tagtitle, and tagalbum is shown, and just when you think it will scroll, it dissappears, the radio portion of it works fine in this screen. Both work fine while in menu.skin, is there something I have missed?

    here is what I have in my external_music_gps.skin

    L03,90,15,498,34,#DFX1R#,#DFX1G#,#DFX1B#,18,#DFXFo nt#,"BYVAR;ACTIVESOURCEID;=<<=Title<<FREQUENCE||= - ||STATION||= - ||RDSTEXT<<=<<=Title<<TAGARTIST||= - ||TAGTITLE||= - ||TAGALBUM<<=Title","SCROLL-LEFT"
    Also is there a way to increase the frequency that the rdstext is pulled from the radio stream, as it doesnt seem to update soon enough.

    You could try something like this

    Code:
    L03,90,15,498,34,#DFX1R#,#DFX1G#,#DFX1B#,18,#DFXFont#,"$DISPLAY1$||$DISPLAY2$||$DISPLAY3$||$DISPLAY4$||$DISPLAY5$","SCROLL-CENTER"
    
    
    /,--------------
    ExecTBL.ini
    
    "ONSONGSTART","BYVAR;ACTIVESOURCEID;SETTING1<<SETTING2<<SETTING3<<SETTING4<<SETTING5<<SETTING5<<SETTING6"
    
    "SETTING1","SETVAR;DISPLAY1;||SETVAR;DISPLAY2;||SETVAR;DISPLAY3;||SETVAR;DISPLAY4;||SETVAR;DISPLAY5;"
    "SETTING2","SETVAR;DISPLAY1;=Title||SETVAR;DISPLAY2;||SETVAR;DISPLAY3;||SETVAR;DISPLAY4;||SETVAR;DISPLAY5;"
    "SETTING3","SETVAR;DISPLAY1;FREQUENCE||SETVAR;DISPLAY2;= - ||SETVAR;DISPLAY3;STATION||SETVAR;DISPLAY4;= - ||SETVAR;DISPLAY5;RDSTEXT"
    "SETTING4","SETVAR;DISPLAY1;||SETVAR;DISPLAY2;||SETVAR;DISPLAY3;||SETVAR;DISPLAY4;||SETVAR;DISPLAY5;"
    "SETTING5","SETVAR;DISPLAY1;=Title||SETVAR;DISPLAY2;||SETVAR;DISPLAY3;||SETVAR;DISPLAY4;||SETVAR;DISPLAY5;"
    "SETTING5","SETVAR;DISPLAY1;TAGARTIST||SETVAR;DISPLAY2;= - ||SETVAR;DISPLAY3;TAGTITLE||SETVAR;DISPLAY4;= - ||SETVAR;DISPLAY5;TAGALBUM"
    "SETTING6","SETVAR;DISPLAY1;=Title||SETVAR;DISPLAY2;||SETVAR;DISPLAY3;||SETVAR;DISPLAY4;||SETVAR;DISPLAY5;"

    If you don't like scrollimg stuff like me you can do stuff like this.

    Code:
    .SKIN file
    TMR,5
    L,,,,,,,,"$DISPLAYTRACKNAME$","CENTER"
    
    ExecTBL.ini file
    "TIMER","BYVAR;FLIPTRACK;SETVAR;DISPLAYTRACKNAME;TRACKNAME<<SETVAR;DISPLAYTRACKNAME;TAGARTIST<<SETVAR;DISPLAYTRACKNAME;TAGTITLE||BYVAR;FLIPTRACK;SETVAR;FLIPTRACK;1<<SETVAR;FLIPTRACK;2<<SETVAR;FLIPTRACK;0"
